A: Pours a cloudy yet vibrant copper-red; finger-width head, medium lacing, medium retention

M: Medium-thick viscosity, lightly carbonated; smooth, slightly dry, very buttery

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a tulip. Unsure of the vintage. Pours an amber hue with a rocky, two-inch, off-white head embedded with craters and ringlets. Head eventually dissipates into a algae-like slick with swaths and spots of lacing coating the edges of the glass. Nose expresses notes of bubblegum, a sweet vinous quality and a suggestion of something else; perhaps honey. Taste consistent with nose, with the addition of a candied quality and just a trace of hops that is a bit muddled, but slightly evident at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a pleasant, even carbonation that leaves a residual prickle at the back of the throat between quaffs. There's also the slightest oiliness to the texture. Overall, a decent Quad, but a bit too sweet. Not sure how well this will hold up in the cellar - I get the slightest sense of a metallic quality which I don't think will bode well for extended cellaring.
